there are the claims. now, clearly the line about osama bin laden being dead is true. but are we better off? do the president's claims add up? "outfront" tonight, robert o'brien, a member of mitt romney's foreign policy and national security advisory team, and colin call, an advocate for the obama campaign. great to see you. let's go through the key claims here. the first one the president said, in his words, al qaeda is weakened. there is no question, of course, that al qaeda suffered significant licenses overall with key leaders being killed along with, of course, osama bin laden. but al qaeda-linked groups are growing elsewhere, specifically in libya and north africa, as we have seen on the ground. so has al qaeda been weakened, are we safer than we were before? robert? >> well, that speech today had -- thank you, erin -- had a real "back to the future" feel to it, and it wasn't good. the last three years that the president has come to the u.n., he has talked to iran, syria and the peace process.
